OUR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDERS TREAT THE FOLLOWING:
Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects how your body turns food into energy. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes (diabetes while pregnant). More than 122 million Americans are living with diabetes (34.2 million) or prediabetes (88 million).
Hypertension (HTN) and high blood pressure increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death for Americans. High blood pressure is also very common. Tens of millions of adults in the United States have high blood pressure, and many do not have it under control.
CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE (CHF)
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a chronic condition in which the heart doesn’t pump blood as well as it should.
PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD)
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) in the legs or lower extremities is the narrowing or blockage of the vessels that carry blood from the heart to the legs. It is primarily caused by the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries, which is called atherosclerosis. PAD can happen in any blood vessel, but it is more common in the legs than the arms.
CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs. It is one of the most common long-term diseases of children, but adults can have asthma, too.
DEMENTIA & ALZHEIMERS DISEASE
Dementia is not a specific disease but is rather a general term for the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interfere with doing everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. Though dementia mostly affects older adults, it is not a part of normal aging.
BENEFITS OF BUILDING A DOCTOR-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP
Every one of the illnesses we treat comes with its challenges, warning signs, and treatment options. The route that’s best for you depends on your body and how you want to approach your healing plan throughout your everyday life. Working with a dedicated primary care provider for an extended period of time has the benefit of giving you access to professionals who are familiar with the unique challenges your specific body and mind will need to overcome throughout a treatment process. This means better, more customized plans and often better results.
IPGS is here to provide each and every one of our patients with care that suits their specific lifestyle and needs to promote overall wellness, and part of getting that job done is working with you on a regular basis. Once our professionals have a better understanding of your mind and body and the struggles they may face on a day-to-day basis, they’ll have the opportunity to create a comprehensive, whole-person health or treatment plan that truly fits your needs. Working closely with your primary care provider gets you better results and helps you get the most from your healthcare.
